A zoo has rabbits, goats and sheep in the ratio 6: 3: 2.

Rabbits are 8 more than sheep.

How many goats does the garden have?

HELP ME PLEASE

Rabbits : Sheep     is     6:2

Rabbits + 8  is to  6      as     R is to 2

(r+8)/6 = r/2

2r+16 = 6r

4r = 16

r = 4   

 

Now do it for rabbits and goats

 

rabbits : goats   is     6:3

4 rabbits is to 6     as     x goats is to 3

4/6 = x/3

x = goats = 3 * 4/6 = 2 goats
